Future of Money - Learn

Marc Jacobs is one of many who is now embracing social currency. His store, instead of taking money for his items, takes social media posts like Tweets and Facebook posts in exchange for products. Other stores are also getting on board with this. As a PR major, I understand that social media, word of mouth, etc. is just as powerful as money. I believe social currency is the next big thing.

World Water 2020

For World Water 2020, I would challenge the world (not just those living in developed nations, but also in developing nations) to go the day without using water. I believe if we were to spend an entire day with no use of water at all; no drinking water flowing from our faucets, no flushing toilets, no washing machines to clean our clothes, we would gain a greater appreciation for water. Not only would we develop a greater appreciation for water, but also gain a greater understanding for just…

Water for People Donation

I find Water for People to be an amazing organization. I would certainly donate to Water for People because it is evident that what they are doing is having a positive impact throughout the world and providing clean water for many. I prefer to support organizations that are well established and that have even further potential to grow through support from individuals such as myself.

Water for People

I found Water for People to be an awesome initiative to provide clean water to over 10 countries throughout the world. Water for People addresses the wh*** picture, going beyond just providing the actual clean water support, but also establishing a long term plan and system.

Water Crisis - Act

I am helping to further water security efforts done by Water.org by following and promoting them on Twitter. As a PR major, I believe social media is a great way to help get the word out about projects and organizations. My direct contribution is the power of my Retweet, Tweet and Favorite button on my Twitter account.

Water Crisis - Learn

LifeStraw provides clean drinking water for those who live by bodies of water that are unable to be drank safely. It's cheap to purchase and provides many in developing countries with water they desperately need. http://www.buylifestraw.com/the-cause

Power Shift- Act

Everybody moves, so my idea to power the electronics around us would be to harbor the energy from movements. As soon as people wake up they are moving: they have to get ready for work or school (taking a shower, eating breakfast, getting dressed, etc.) then once they are at work or school they continue moving, whether it is walking around, typing, writing, or talking. All of these movements would acc**ulate throughout the day and could be used to power things like cell phones, lap tops, and…

The Future of Money- Act

I work at a locally-run smoothie store and my friend works at locally-run coffee shop and whenever either of us work a shift we get a free drink from our establishments. Before this assignment there were times when I would not get my shift drink because I was not in the mood for a smoothie. After this assignment I decided to ask my friend if she wanted to switch shift drinks, so I would give her my smoothie and she would give me her coffee. She agreed and we are going to continue using this…

The Future of Money- Learn

I think the biggest change in how we use money in the future is going to be the increasing dependence on electronic money. Most people rely on debit or credit cards to make purchases and with the increasing technologies of smart phones, I believe, that the process of buying and selling goods will become possible to complete through phones. Currently, there is an App called Google Wallet, that allows customers to simply tap their phone, which securely contains their credit card information,…

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
